Established 30 years ago this March, The Market is both a village grocer, providing healthy food options and personal care products, as well as a café. Both areas of this Front Street shop offer organic ingredients and minimally processed (clean!) foods.

The Market was born from owner Shelly Scoggin’s desire to find a healthier way of living for her family. At the time she had a new baby on the way and finding a source for organic food options on the North Fork was nearly impossible. That’s when she knew it was the right time to open her market.

Today, you’ll find a wide variety of organic produce, vitamins, personal care products and gluten-free foods on the shelves. The Market’s menu is creative and spans breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as smoothies and desserts. We chatted with Scoggin in the corner of her café one afternoon at lunchtime and found out more about this gem of a health food store and eatery. (more…)

It’s February on the North Fork. At times it can feel like the whole East End is riding out the winter on the warm shores of Waikiki, but there are many business owners who stay behind to feed the hungry masses.

Here are a handful of eateries serving lunch to locals and midweek visitors all winter long.

You probably didn’t know this, but it’s “Meat Free Week” in the U.S., as well as the U.K. and Australia.

It’s a campaign to get people to think about eating less meat, whether for health, political or just personal reasons. It also encourages people to be more adventurous with food and hopefully try new vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

If you’ve chosen to participate in Meat Free Week and are getting tired of eating salads, here are just a few of our favorite meat-free options on the North Fork.  (more…)

Getting a good meal is nearly effortless on the North Fork, where inventive menus abound and local ingredients proliferate. It’s decidedly more complicated to find suitable — not to mention tasty — fare if you are a vegan.

And while someone who doesn’t eat animal products (aside from meat, that includes eggs and dairy) can never go wrong by ordering a salad, vegans deserve options.   (more…)
